Poytner has a post to help you determine when liveblogging is more effective than tweeting.
Liveblogging is “still one of my favorite instruments in the modern journalism toolkit”, writes Matt Thompson, but fears its popularity is diminishing.
Thompson offers journalists five reasons why a story should be liveblogged rather than tweeted, saying a liveblog forces you to genuinely pay attention, it also forces you to write, it can be intensely engaging, it’s a service to your users and it can be a service from your users.
